What to Bring: 

Good snorkeling gear is a must!!! (Mask, snorkel (best if dry) and snorkeling fins).  Should you need to rent good snorkeling gear, you may do so on the island, I recommend Jack’s diving locker.   The boat will also have available snorkeling gear for you to use.   Please be sure that you have good equipment.  There is nothing more annoying than to be struggling with unfit equipment and miss all the enjoyment of your ocean swim.  We will give the gears a workout  before we get on the boat.

  • A snorkeling vest if you are not comfortable swimming in the ocean. You may want to consider renting a snorkeling vest that will allow you to float at all times.  Tubes will be provided by the boat if these can be useful for your comfort.  

  • A shorty/or full wetsuit if you tend to be chilled in the ocean (70’s- low 80’s).  These are also available to rent for about 10 $/day.  Temperatures are usually in the 70-80’s.

  • Bathing suits (2), Casual clothes (shorts and T-shirts), a long sleeve shirt, sweater/windbreaker/poncho, jacket, comfortable meditation clothing, sandals and sneakers for hiking (or teva or  anything that you don’t mind getting muddy), flip flops, hat or visor, sunglasses, sun block, insect repellant, socks to wear with fins, defogger (or diluted baby shampoo would work just fine), sea sickness drug if necessary (i.e. bonine), flash light with extra batteries, and any personal items you may need.  Please leave heavy clothing and valuable items at home… as they will remain in your bag the entire stay until the plane ride home.

  • Optional suggestions: camera, wet suit, binoculars, day back, dry pack, writing/drawing pad, small flashlight, musical instrument.   For the retreat, I highly recommend you bring a journal and anything you would like to share with the group.
